Sinful Colors Nail Polish Swatch – Sinful Colors Social Ladder Swatch

I loaded up on some polishes during Walgreen’s 99 cent sale on Sinful Colors polishes a couple weeks ago, and I’m just now getting around to swatching them. Sinful Colors is a line of 3 free nail polishes carried at Walgreen’s and other department stores that retail for $1.99. While they aren’t available at CVS, some colors are carried at Rite Aid.

One of the polishes I picked up is Social Laddera very sheer pinkish white base with pink and blue microshimmer.


I really like the shimmer in this polish, but it’s pretty streaky, even after 3 coats.





I’m thinking of combining this with Wet ‘n Wild’s Sugar Coat in order to make it appear more opaque.

What do you think of this polish and milky polishes in general?

Sinful Colors Nail Polish Swatch – Sinful Colors Cinderella Swatch

Cinderella was among the first Sinful Colors polishes I picked up. Cinderella is a pale, milky blue with pink and gold glass fleck and is inspired by the color of Cinderella’s gown. Sinful Colors is a line of 3 free nail polishes carried at Walgreen’s and other department stores for $1.99 per bottle. Though they aren’t available at CVS (the most popular drugstore chain in the DC area), they are available at Rite Aid, which carries exclusive colors, such as Citrine.


I wish the formula wasn’t quite so sheer. I used 4 coats, and it’s nowhere near opaque. But the fleck is really pretty, so I’ll keep experimenting with some layering combos until I find the right match.



Do you have this polish or any recommendations for good layering combos? Do you have any sheer polishes that you wish were just slightly more pigmented?

Sinful Colors Nail Polish Swatch – Sinful Colors You Just Wait Swatch

I loaded up on some polishes during Walgreen’s 99 cent sale on Sinful Colors polishes a couple weeks ago, and I’m just now getting around to swatching them. Sinful Colors is a line of 3 free nail polishes carried at Walgreen’s and other department stores. They aren’t available at CVS, though.

One of the polishes I picked up is You Just Wait, a very pale, very sheer pink with green duochrome. It’s gorgeous!


As you can see from the photos below, You Just Wait is extremely sheer, so it will likely be better for layering. I generally don’t like duochrome polishes – they remind me of chameleon paint jobs – but this polish is really quite pretty, so subtle and delicate.




I haven’t yet decided what combo I want to pair this polish with, but I think I might try Wet ‘n Wild’s Sugar Coat – just something to give this polish a little more depth and coverage. Do you have any ideas for good combos for this polish?

Sinful Colors Nail Polish Swatch – Sinful Colors Glass Pink Swatch

I loaded up on some polishes during Walgreen’s 99 cent sale on Sinful Colors polishes a couple weeks ago, and I’m just now getting around to swatching them. One of my favorites is Glass Pinka very sheer pale pink with lots of pink/green microshimmer




The color is similar to Confetti’s Dreamdate, but the multi-colored microshimmer sets Glass Pink apart. It was just difficult to capture the beauty of the shimmer.






I used two coats in the above photos, and as you can see, it’s nowhere near opaque. However, layered over Wet ‘n Wild’s Sugar Coat (pics later), this is a perfect “safe for work” combo. Delicate, shimmery, and oh so pretty.

What are some of your favorite “safe for work” looks? Do you have any favorite combos for Glass Pink?

Confetti Nail Polish Swatches – Confetti Dreamdate Swatch

Confetti is a 3 free nail polish that retails for $1.99 and sold exclusively by CVS. According to the Confetti website, the line includes 48 colors. I recently picked up Dreamdate, a very sheer baby pink with tons of shimmer.


As you can see from the photos below, Dreamdate is extremely sheer. I used 4 coats and it was nowhere near opaque. But I think this is a wonderful color if you’re wishing to achieve a subtle shimmer or want a “safe for work” polish. Also, please forgive the fleck of red glitter on my middle finger. I didn’t catch it until I saw these photos.


The more I look at these photos, the more excited I become to use this polish in layering! What are some of your favorite layering polishes or combinations?
